BIOGRAPHY

Art is my passion.  As a very young child I used to literally color my world.  I drew on everything I could get my hands on.  Today, I am just as passionate about my creativity.  I am not just a painter, but I'm a creative artist, educator, and consultant.

Yolanda is a visual artist, singer/songwriter, creativity consultant and arts educator from Dallas, Texas.  She is a self-taught artist who developed a love for art and everything creative as a young girl, at a little private school in Oak Cliff, the community that she still calls home.  As a proud graduate of the Dallas Independent School District, and the HBCU Paul Quinn College, Yolanda graces the world with her intriguing imagery.  Many of the themes found in her artwork are inspired from her life as an African American woman, mother, and educator.

 

Yolanda's murals, fine art, and custom commissions are held in many private collections throughout the U. S.  Her artwork is also found in a variety public collections.  She has exhibited her work in a variety of solo exhibitions as well as collective exhibitions at the Dallas Myerson Symphony Center, the African American Museum, Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series, and EDS.  One of her largest public murals, "Leaving a Legacy", currently wraps the cafeteria at Paul Quinn College.
